Hi guys. We've heard about Scientology and how bad it is. I have a friend who wants me to join in an Anonymous Protest with him, but I am sceptical... does Scientology really exist in New Zealand and is it that bad? He is really into 4chan and all that sorta stuff so I think he might just be doing this for the hell of it, you know... just to jump on the wagon, not because he actually cares. But that is irrelevent, I suppose. I just want to know how bad it is here.

@aperson,
Dang. If I wanted to know, I would have asked you.

@roger,
Maybe that's an indication that it either doesn't exist, or is very very quiet.

@aperson,
Of course it exists:

You have a small population, so hopefully your crop of scientologists is also small...but the thing is nearly ubiquitous.

(I doubt that have too many in Saudi Arabia, for instance.)

@aperson,
Yes they do exist, they're active mainly in Auckland with a small official presence in Christchurch. Although Scientology claims thousands of members in New Zealand, the last Census count was 375. Scientologists can be vindictive - they did try (and fail) to get the husband of one ex-scientologist fired from his job after he attended a protest - but that's the worst I've heard of.

Protests can be pretty rockin' and there's sometimes delicious cake, so you may as well check out the next one - think it's the 16th of May. See kiwianon.com/forums for more info.
